MLM: Just Another Part of the Ride

About 7 years ago when I first heard Personal Development and the idea that our thoughts create reality connected with Network Marketing, I was incredulous. I found it hard to believe that what I thought and believed had anything to do with my business success. 

Let’s face it, how many car salespeople or brokers concern themselves with such things? I was starting a networking business and needed to do the things necessary to build it. What was all this New Age stuff to do with that? 

Well, maybe those salespeople and brokers should pay attention, because now I know that seven years ago my education in my innate powers was just beginning. 

The very last part of the video presentation below ends with these words: 

“The world is like a ride at an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round and it has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly colored and it’s very loud. And it’s fun for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, “Is this real or is this just a ride?’ and other people have remembered and they come back to us and they say, ‘Hey, Don’t worry, don’t be afraid ever because . . . this is just a ride.'”

MLM or network marketing is just an attraction, another ride at the amusement park.

Don’t be afraid to let out a good scream!

The Aphorism Salon – Pay Attention

The trouble with most people is they don’t listen – TO THEMSELVES!  They know Get-Rich-Quick schemes are exactly that, yet they continue to join and support them. It’s the “Something for Nothing” mentality.

Same thing goes for the Law of Attraction. The general expectation, after watching the movie THE SECRET, was to <POP> a thought in one’s head and voila! One’s Heart’s Desire would be manifest.  Our Physical Universe just doesn’t work like that. While it’s true that your outertv5world will shape itself to the inner world created by your thoughts, some deliberate action is required. And that’s what I’d like to address.  Especially the idea of paying attention.

You see, there really is “Nothing for Nothing” or, “Everything has its Price”. And sometimes we pay for something in a  currency other than money. We can pay in how and to what we bend our minds.

The Latin verb attendere is the root of our word attention, and it means “to turn or bend one’s mind towards“. Giving or paying attention is the clear, decisive act by the mind of taking possession of someone or something chosen out of several possibilities. ‘Paying attention’ conversely suggests ignoring some possibilities in order to deal effectively with the chosen object of your attention. It also suggests conscious control.

To purposefully attract into your life what you desire, you’d best get a handle on your attention. So I’ll ask you this: How much TV do you watch? What movies? Oh, just the news. I see, just enough to shake your confidence and put a little bit of fear into you. A dose of reality, huh?

The photo above shows John’s whiteboard in his salon. I’ve written about it before. This week’s aphorism hit me, as usual, right in the solar plexus. Interpretation:  Life isn’t what you see on TV or hear on the radio or read in a newspaper, magazine or novel. Life is what you pay attention to, and consequently, attract.

If you’re not attracting what you desire, pay attention to what you’re paying attention to.

Among the things that don’t deserve your attention are: TV & radio, especially the news; newspapers; advertisements & billboards; shopping malls; people you have no interest in; excessive noise; driving; spam Email and junk mail; Self-criticism; and people telling you your dream of owning your life is not real.

Creating Your Purpose – Crafting Your WHY

In my last post I used something Joseph Campbell said to make the point that we create our lives – or not. If we do not inform and infuse meaning and purpose into our lives, they have none. Life is meaningless unless we do something about it.

Since nothing could be more undesirable than living a meaningless life, here’s how to take care of that. Here is a point-by-point plan to craft your life’s WHY, something that MUST be about YOU. Let me remind You that this is NOT Selfish in the way most people take that to mean.

I have borrowed the outline from one of my team’s mentors, Sarah Thompson, and have then made it my own. Take the time to Use it. It works. And thank you Sarah.

  1. Accept & Believe that You have Powers beyond your Imagination.
  2. Expand your Imagination to catch up to those Latent Powers to become anything You desire Becoming.
  3. Create a Plan. Work at it. Adjust it as required. (It is a living, breathing entity.)
  4. You have already – no matter what your age is now – been many people: a child, a youngster, a brother or sister, a son or daughter, a boy or girl friend, a student, a parent, a serviceman or servicewoman, a grandparent. Understand ALL these experiences helped you attained a slightly different outward personality, each time leading to a new You.
  5. Using these experiences, accept that You are capable of Changing and have done so, but mostly Unconsciously and as situations demanded.
  6. KNOW it’s your turn to Consciously Change, on Your Demand.
  7. Take the time to reflect, putting No Time Limit or Pressure on Yourself.
  8. Know Yourself- Know Your Story. What has happened to You & Your life? Has your life turned out the way you thought it would?
  9. WHAT happened to Your Dreams? What filters are working against You? What conditioning beliefs are not serving You? How do You interpret You, Your Life and Your Beliefs? Where did You get those Beliefs?
  10. Where do You want to be in 5 years . . . in 2 years . . . next year . . . in 6 months . . . next month . . . in 2 weeks?
  11. What do You desire in your relationships with your spouse, children, parents, neighbors, colleagues?
  12. How do you recreate yourself? What thrills You & gives You goosebumps? What fulfills You & makes You happy?
  13. What are You grateful for and do You regularly express Gratitude?
  14. Decide on a Goal in each of these areas: Personal Values, Relationships, Personal Freedom.
  15. Craft your Self-Talk that is Synchronized with Your newly designed  and crafted ‘WHY’.

  • Where Are Your Dreams?

    I woke up a few mornings ago with that phrase running, singing through my mind. Groggily I grabbed a voice recorder and captured this:

    Where are your dreams? Where are your dreams? Where are your dreams?

    Are you feeding them? If not, they’ll avoid you. They’ll go some place where they are fed.

    Where are your dreams? Where are your dreams? Where are your dreams? 

    Are you taking care of them? Are you serving your dreams? If not, they’ll go to someone who will treat them better.

    Where are your dreams? Where are your dreams? Where are your dreams?

    Dreams are living things. They need sustenance. They need care. They need attention and love. If you don’t give them sustenance, care, attention and love, they’ll find someone who will.

    Where are your dreams? Where are your dreams? Where are your dreams?

    Your dreams are sensitive things. They know when they’re being slighted. They know when you’re paying them lip service.

    They’ll never come. They’ll never come true if you don’t give them what they need.

    Where are your dreams? Where are your dreams?  Where are your dreams?

    Are your dreams in prison? Have you locked them up? Have you put them away saying, “One day, one day they’ll come true”? Your dreams will fly away if they don’t FEEL they’ll come true.

    Don’t lock up you dreams.

    Don’t ignore your dreams expecting that they’ll always be there.

    Don’t take your dreams for granted.

    FEED them. SUSTAIN them. EXERCISE them. Give your dreams what they need & they’ll grow & come true.

    Then you’ll know where your dream is ’cause it will always come back to you, it’ll never go far. It’ll stay where it’s being taken care of.

    Where is your dream? Where is your dream? Where is your dream?

    Your dream is like an egg. If there’s a crack in it when placed in hot water, it’ll explode & your egg, your dream, will leak out. The container will be breached and it will not be true.

    Where are you holding your dream? In a waterproof, crackproof container that can withstand the boiling hot waters of negativity and naysayers and doubters?

    Where are your dreams? Where are your dreams? Where are your dreams?

    Have you accessed them yet? Are they where you can play with them, live with them, work with them?

    Are they accessible to you? Or do you put them away in a safeplace for safekeeping for a safer time?

    Where are your dreams?

    There’s only one thing your dreams need to stay alive . . .

    FEED  them ACTIONS. Your Actions. Your Dedicated Passionate Actions.

    Action & Attention. That’s all your dreams need. And they’ll come . . .

    The Ultimate “Secret” Technique for Networking Success

    The ultimate technique is really not secret at all. You just haven’t realized it yet.

    I mean that literally. You just haven’t made it real – that’s what realize means. As specialize means to make something special, realize means to make something real, something manifest.

    Here’s the secret: To own your success, to own your life, learn how to own your mind and its thoughts and images.

    Sound simple? You say you’ve heard this before and it makes some sense to you? Then ask yourself this: Are you still watching the soaps and the news, still reading gossip sites and magazines, still surfing the web, playing video games or catching your team’s latest game, all as time-killers?

    When you do these things and others like them, you are renting space in your mind to others, giving away your power – and they will never, Never, NEVER care about your success as much as you do. Why would they?

    If that’s fully registered, the next question is: “How do I get a handle on the thoughts and images that pop in and out of my mind seemingly uncontrolled by me?”

    Here’s the answer: You need to cleanse your apparatus; wipe the mental slate clean as much as this is possible.

    And the first step is to turn off the TV & radio, throw out the newspapers and magazines. Start controlling what you are letting enter your mind.

    This is obviously easier said than done so ask yourself, “How badly do I want this success?”  I don’t mean sitting there, fists and teeth clenched, neck veins bulging, shaking, sweating, and red-faced saying out loud, “I really, really, really, REALLY want success.”

    The programming done is deep and has been ongoing for a very long time. It’s called culture, and it’s happened to us all. The media used are insidious and have been developed into more tricks than we’ll ever learn. We’ve all been targeted. 

    This mental cleansing is not possible alone. You will need a plan and the support of like-minded people who have suffered as you have and who, like you, are consumed by their success.

    Believe it or not, they are equally consumed by serving as your mentors.

    Food for Thought . . . and Thought as Food

    If there is a better tale illustrating the dynamic of thought and intent, and the power we each possess, I’ve never seen or heard it.

    If you know it, enjoy it once again. If it’s new to you, I don’t think you’ll forget the simplicity and power of it.

    ~~~~~~~~~~

    An old Cherokee was sitting with his grandson, telling the boy about the battle that goes on inside people.

    He said, “My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.

    “One is Evil. It is called Anger, Envy, Jealousy, Sorrow, Regret, Greed, Arrogance, Self-pity, Guilt, Resentment, Inferiority, Lies, False Pride, and Superiority.

    “The other is Good. It is called Joy, Peace, Love, Hope, Serenity, Humility, Kindness, Benevolence, Empathy, Generosity, Truth, Compassion and Faith.”

    The grandson thought about it for a while and then asked,

    “Grandfather, which wolf wins?”

    The old Cherokee simply said, “The one you feed.”

    ~~~~~~~~~~

    What’s this got to do with networking you might ask? Well just about everything!

    If you are struggling with your business, you are struggling with yourself.

    Ask yourself: Which wolf am I feeding?
